"Firefox is the best"

August 27, 2015  |  By tyrmyte

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 40.0.2

Pros

Since I found Firefox ten years ago.. it has been my go to browser. Sure it has it's problems with Flash and Java, but you work around that. I have mine tweaked so well that I rarely get any issues or lockups. I may occasionally use IE or the New Edge from Microsoft but only if I can't get a web page to function properly in Firefox. Outside of that... Firefox stays my default browser.

Cons

Must manually download and install certain updates like Java or Flash.

"Reliable and predictable"

August 26, 2015  |  By bellboy57

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 40.0.2

Pros

Same confidence in a proven product. Firefox is working and provides a viable alternative to Edge (which isn't always seem-less).

Cons

No cons, at this point!

Summary

Same confidence in a proven product. Firefox is working and provides a viable alternative to Edge (which isn't always seem-less).

"Fast, stable, and *TOTALLY UNSECURE!!!*"

August 23, 2015  |  By reynard2

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 40.0.2

Pros

Fast and pretty stable, and I could import my bookmarks without any problems. But...

Cons

NO SECURITY!!! This browser (and Chrome, BTW) let pretty much *any* virus, malware and unwanted app e-rape my computer without the slightest bit of resistance. I was doing more uninstalling and anti-virus scans than actual work. I finally gave up and went back to using my Safari 5.1 even though it's ancient and unsupported -- because at least Safari doesn't let in all the bad stuff that Firefox and Chrome did. (Now I've been *forced* to update to Opera because Safari runs too slowly on Win10. Oh well, it was nice while it lasted...)

"has gone down hill"

August 22, 2015  |  By yopaulyyo

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 40.0.2

Pros

Loved the idea of it being relatively commercial free. Has lots of addons

Cons

Lately it has been buggy with video issues, crashes and freezes. I've been visiting Chrome and Edge to see site embedded videos

"*Sigh, what happened?"

August 20, 2015

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 40.0.2

Pros

Easy to use and learn

Cons

Constant freezing, crashes lockups, lag and rebooting
Many errors and problems with Videos
Constant notification boxes to update [when I don't want to update that version]

Summary

I'm at a loss as to why so many people still adore this browser? It used to be awesome but now all I experience is a headache from it - I'm almost convinced it's incompatible with Facebook with constant freezing and "script bug" error boxes....
At sign on, it locks up randomly at least 50% of the time and all videos are absent. I constantly have to close the browser and try again.
Yesterday on a recipe website, it just did not play the video that I clicked to play.
Nothing.
I took the same page link into Google Chrome and clicked the video, it played right away. So... unresponsive video commands.
They must have fixed one thing recently because the browser used to crash all the time at start up and I'd submit yet another crash report to them. Finally!

I never had these problems with the earlier Firefox and don't know what's happened, but I'm moving to Google Chrome. I've just had enough with this unacceptable browser performance and constant waiting/rebooting.

"Disabled important addons"

August 12, 2015  |  By zoomie666

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 40.0

Pros

None, they are releasing versions without quality control I believe

Cons

The newest version disabled important addons including Roboform.

Summary

If Firefox is going to disable addons they should at least offer a way to add them back.

"Updates only make things worse"

July 23, 2015  |  By rc191

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 39.0

Pros

Not too many Pro's--- Not a great deal of choices for web browsers. Netscape didn't really try, and then couldn't keep up with the new "Bells Whistles, and garbage" that invades each page we go to. Explorer, is the default for most people, and they could care less about their users.
Firefox, in the beginning was a great Browser. Key word WAS.....

Cons

Firefox is their own worst enemy, and each upgrade only makes things worse, and it takes much time and effort to undo, or fix what the updates screw up. Then, Firefox gets crazy with "Add-Ons" "Apps, and unwanted and unneeded "TOOLS" If you go back to the last version, or choose not to update, you are constantly NAGGED to upgrade.
It is or has become more trouble than its worth. If you don't have it, DON'T download it. Stick with what you have or find other options. I know a few are out there.
Lastly, once you have the browser and used it for a while, you are stuck. Unless you have several days of free time to bring another browser up to where you are happy with.

Summary

It was a decent browser and was user friendly, in the early years. Now you are incessantly nagged to update, and get add ons and apps that are for the most part garbage, and do nothing to enhance your web surfing.
Firefox makes you spend more time fixing what the updates mess up, and any "help" provided, is of no use. So you are stuck with a program that bugs you to update to a newer version of bad. And we fall for it......
